By co-creating a timeline of transformation, participants connect with the possibility of change both in history and in the time span of their own lives.
In this method, a blank timeline is graphically represented on a large sheet or roll of paper and hung on the wall prior to the event. Participants are invited to co-create the timeline by adding social events that changed history, either positively or negatively, as well as personal experiences that have transformed them in some way. The timeline sets the stage for thinking about what transformations are possible in the future; it can also act as a conversation starter between people who might not know each other.
Roll of paper and colorful markers; sticky notes (optional).
